Title

Cornfield and Barn

Description

Marcia Wegman is an artist living in Iowa City. Her work has been featured in national arts magazines.
The Midwest landscape has surrounded me all of my life. Having spent most of my childhood in Ohio and my entire adult life in Iowa, it is the images of these vistas which periodically inspire me to try a new way of expressing this subtly beautiful landscape. I enjoy hiking in some wilder parts of the country so am also challenged by the unique forms of beauty found in each of these places. In the past I have worked in acrylic and collage. Now I am using the medium of soft pastel to capture the qualities of undulating hills, overlapping rhythmic forms, textures of trees and vegetation, rich colors, dynamic patterns, changing light, and, always the sky. The land remains constant, the colors transform subtlety from season to season, but the sky is an ever-shifting panorama of light, color and form. The possibilities are limitless.
